For over two years Tyjuana Wilson has written about singlehood while living in Charlotte. Her blog is now a book, a fictitious journey of a writer who is determined to be single and happy.
Tolethia Toy Winnings is on a quest to prove that being single -- and almost 40, with good looks, a freelance writing career and a college-freshman daughter who shakes her head at it all! -- is possible.

That’s when it hit me, he cannot read. How in the world is he an online dater?"
